I am having this problem in my book:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

For a set of N identical harmonic oscillators, the energy for the ith harmonic oscillator is E(i)= (n(i) - 1/2)*h (nu).

(a) What is the total energy of this system?

(b) What is the number of states, Omega (E) , for N=2 and 3?

(c) What is the number of states for a large N.

I thought about the first part. I think I should just add all these energies.
